Okay, just a couple more Prop 8 things. This one is another example, maybe, of “reverse rhetoric” — in the sense of re-casting a proposition from another (in this case, historical) perspective. Maybe I need a new term: perspective rhetoric? Hmm, anyway… I wonder if this one would/could be more effective (and affective) than the one in my previous post (the one imagining a commercial against inter-racial marriage in 2008). This one got to me more. What does anyone else think?
And this one is pretty good, a combination of pathos, logos, and historical perspective. And ethos.
And this one strikes me as an even better example of pathos as well as logos.
